  • "We had a amazing week at Foxholes Lodge!"

    Such a cosy cottage with its quirky stairs. The kitchen had everything we needed, the bed was so comfortable that I slept soundly on our first night away (which I’ve never done before). It has its own private garden with table and chairs and off road parking space. It’s so ideally situated, being close to all the walks we wanted to do (Ingleton waterfalls walk, Malham Cove/Tarn/ Janet’s Foss, Clapham/Gaping Gill, Pen y Ghent. It’s just a short stroll to Settle which has a wonderful Booth’s supermarket. The Old Naked Man cafe is well worth a visit, but beware - the smells coming out of it on a Sunday morning will make you salivate! The fish and chip shop opposite is excellent. Our hosts Graham, Lynn, Maggie and Rosie were very welcoming and friendly and happy to share their knowledge of the local area. We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect week and will be returning to Foxholes Lodge soon. Thank you!

  • "Lovely little property, 10-15 minute walk from the centre of Settle, set in a peaceful location."

    Small, but just enough space for comfort - though people with accessibility issues may struggle somewhat. Wi-Fi doesn't reach lounge. Plenty of pots and pans to cook basic meals. Has a fridge but no freezer.

    It is clean ,comfortable and cosy and a very nice stroll by the river into Settle .it is very handy for the Settle Carlisle railway and also the Embsay steam heritage railway, we also managed a bus ride to Skipton and a trip on the canal boat.It is only a short car journey to the magnificent Ribblehead Viaduct. We would definitely visit again.

  • "Cosy, peaceful cottage."

    Ideal for a variety of walks from the doorstep. Approx. 10min walk from Settle town centre, where there are plenty of places to eat & drink. We really loved it but wouldn't recommend for people who are unsteady on their feet as the kitchen is downstairs & lounge upstairs, which means carrying hot drinks/food upstairs.

  • "A comfortable and ideally situated annexe, with the Dales right on the doorstep."

    Perfect for a car free vacation as everything is close enough that you could park up on arrival day and not need the car till the day you leave. My only complaint would be the wifi, which is non existant in the comfortable lounge.

  • "Very well equipped and comfortable, and warm morning and evening."

    The wifi was a bit erratic upstairs but fine on the half landing between bedroom and kitchen, and for writing emails in bed. A warning re the low ceiling in the kitchen by the fridge would be useful (I bumped my head a couple of times getting stuff out of the fridge/cupboards). But a lovely little cottage, v well situated for walking the Dales, and only a short walk into Settle (butchers, bakers, Booths, and the start of some great walks). I'd definitely stay here again, and good to note that several others thought so too from the visitors book. Lots of repeat visits, which is top feedback in itself.

  • "Lovely holiday accommodation, whilst small it had absolutely everything we needed during our stay."

    Very cosy and lovely views across the hills. We would certainly like to return, if you like walking there are a number of walks right off the doorstep. The furthest we travelled by car during the week was 7 miles . Only a short walk into Settle, great choice of eating places if you fancy a meal out. No hesitation in recommending this holiday accommodation.

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    The owners advised of how to collect the key etc prior to our arrival and left tea milk and biscuits for when we arrived which was very nice. Lovely location and easy access to Settle and the surrounding countryside.

  • "Cottage is very clean and comfortable."

    Location is a perfect base for walking, cycling and exploring the area, especially for those without a car - 2 separate railway stations within 0.5 miles, and bus stop for Settle-Kirkby Lonsdale buses within 100 yards. Shops and pubs 0.5 miles too. I've now stayed 11 years running!

  • "The cottage is looking a bit tired, with some internal decoration needed A big plus would be an independently heated towel rail in the bathroom as dry towels would have been nice to have each day Overall it was OK, but not as nice as other Sykes cottages that we have stayed in as the design of the building gives rise to some very acute angles and care has to be taken not to hit your head!"

    The location was very good for walking into Settle and for the railway station for the Settle-Carlisle line

  • "The cottage was perfect - comfortable and clean and close to where I was working."

    The kitchen was fully equipped allowing us to cook an evening meal without resorting to pub meals in the evenings. The owners were very welcoming leaving us everything, including milk and biscuits, to make a drink on our arrival. Station road had parking spaces but it was very convenient to have a parking space inside the yard. The views were beautiful and the cottage a very short walking distance to Settle, and the shops, as well as some beautiful walks by the river.

  • "Lovely, cosy, warm, clean, comfortable cottage."

    Everything was well stocked and met our needs. We also met the owners who were very welcoming and friendly. The wi-fi signal was quite weak, maybe just needs a signal booster. The cottage is only 15 minutes walk to Settle train station and the main town. Everyone we met in Giggleswick and Settle were friendly. We enjoyed our train journeys to Carlisle, Skipton and Leeds. The Royal Oak pub in Settle was very welcoming and we were served by friendly staff. Definitely recommend the cottage and the location.

    There was plenty of parking space which is always an added bonus as I hate walking miles to my car or having to struggle in a poky place. My eyes are not what they were. The local facilities were far enough away without it being too much of a trek if you wanted a drink and to leave the car behind. I fully enjoyed the stay and would recommend to friends and family without a second thought.Great little house and a nice welcome with Grandma Wild's biggest(No relation) and fresh flowers. Keep up the good work. Paul Wild.

About the location

GIGGLESWICK

Settle 1 mile; Malham 6 miles; Skipton 16 miles.

This delightful Ribblesdale village lies below a limestone scar (part of the Craven fault) and just across the river from the bustling market town of Settle. It’s an incredibly pretty place with sturdy houses and cottages, many dating back to the 17th century as the ‘date stones’ over their doorways will confirm. Today the village is still centred around the beautiful St Alkelda’s church, which dates back to the 12th century and the well-known landmark of the domed chapel at the famous Giggleswick School, which dominates the village skyline. Giggleswick itself has two pubs, whilst the wide ranging amenities of the nearby market town of Settle are within easy walking distance. Further afield is the town of Ingleton with its splendid waterfall walk and of course (for the serious walker) the Three Peaks are nearby.
